Riva launches!

April 27, 2022

Lotty B was inspired by the gorgeous, Italian designed Riva boats to create this fabulous new print.

With her usual care and attention to detail, Lotty has created a repeat design of this classic launch, which has been selling for around 180 years in various guises. Interestingly, it was not named after the Riviera, but after the young shipwright who first designed and produced this iconic craft: Pietro Riva. Many generations of Rivas continued his work until the family sold their yard in 1969.

This print has been used on a capsule collection of linen shirts and swim shorts, a children's shirt and swim shorts plus one of our extremely popular "Decima" flared linen dresses.
